Is it possible this thread is 44 pages? I know I'm not going to read them. When threads go over say, 20 pages, and have multiple links to news sources, I wish there was a way to get the condensed readers digest version. With ongong competition videos, the best skates to rewatch, one could spend hours keeping abreast of this one situation. I am very happy to hear what Mirai said to Ashley. I assume this means Mirai has no intention to lodge a formal complaint?

Short version: Johnny blabbed about talking to Mirai and that she would lodge a complaint the day the teams were announced. She never did. We fought about whether Mirai, Polina, or Ashley should stay home. No consensus although there were a lot of hurt feelings.

I was thrilled about the tie and wish is had happened for Nancy. Nancy/Oksana were both great in their day, and I wish Jan Hoffman (was he the German judge who gave Oksana the one tenth extra on artistic mark, thus awarding her gold)? I wish they had tied, tho for me Nancy put down two best of life skates after what she went through.

Why can't there be ties?
My question to you Toni...were the fans really fighting in 2002 over that tie? Sounds like boards were not fun. It seemed all lovey dovey for the 4 as they did tv interviews and SOI shows.
